– mother, male friend arrested
A mother is now in custody following the discovery that her 3-year-old daughter was sexually molested.
The woman, who is from Corriverton in Region Six, was taken into custody along with a male friend after she reported to the Springlands Police Station that her infant was bleeding profusely from the vagina.
According to Police Divisional Commander Ian Amsterdam, the mother of the child had not given Police the name of any suspect who may have committed the act, and as such she was taken into custody.
Amsterdam said following investigations, the woman’s siblings provided information which led to the arrest of the male friend. He said it was revealed that relatives reported that the man had “some interactions” with the child’s mother earlier in the day.
The investigations are continuing.
